‘Community’ Star Gillian Jacobs Planks Tig Notaro On ‘Up Close’

Brittani’s Team Pick:

Comedian Tig Notaro’s new EW show premiered with guest Gillian Jacobs, one of the stars of NBC’s Community. Up Close with Tig Notaro is the best possible name for the show since the interview involves Jacobs lying directly on top of Notaro for the duration. Just when you thought it was impossible to top the stool bit, she comes up with what is guaranteed to be one of the best interview series the internet has ever seen. This is the first of nine episodes so be sure to keep up with the show and if you haven’t listened to LIVE yet, get your entire life right now.
